Fairy Lights

Purple, green and glittering white,

Making the sky look unbelievable and bright

I will finally feel the romance of that night

When I stand with my joys under the Northern lights

So evenly spread, But together all the stars

Showing how nice it is to say

Not “I” but “us”

The team of stars so strong

Proving that helping each other isn’t wrong

Will I be hungry? Will I feel rich?

Will my inner gaps close with a stitch?

I’m still dreaming, it isn’t crazy to say I’m seeing stars,

I hope one day I could take a pass

To stand with my joys under the Northern lights

Until then I will sleep tight

Under my room’s newly installed fairy lights
